Ayelet Waldman gives an animated performance as she chronicles the month she spent taking microdoses of LSD as an experimental treatment for a mood disorder. The audiobook blends history, science, and memoir, and, as narrator, Waldman displays enthusiasm for all of it. She uses pacing, pauses, and changes in tone to enliven even the most mundane details, including implications of U.S. drug policy. Waldman highlights her shifting mental states in her performance, too. Listeners hear her frustration with doctors' inability to find a legal drug that helps her, and they also hear the deep satisfaction she feels as she finally experiences some relief. Her story will appeal to listeners who enjoy quirky memoirs. A.F. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2017]
